3 ) Construct an explanation of the function (e.g., mitochondria releasing energy during cellular respiration) of specific cell structures (i.e., nucleus, cell membrane, cell wall, ribosomes, mitochondria, chloroplasts, and vacuoles) for maintaining a stable environment.

[SC2015] BIOL (9-12) 2 :
2 ) Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information to describe the function and diversity of organelles and structures in various types of cells (e.g., muscle cells having a large amount of mitochondria, plasmids in bacteria, chloroplasts in plant cells).

Subject: Science (7 - 12)
Title: Animal Cells StudyJam
URL: https://studyjams.scholastic.com/studyjams/jams/science/animals/animal-cells.htm
Description:

Animal cells have many functions that support the life of the animal. Animal cells also have lots of different parts, including the cell body, cytoplasm, mitochondria, nucleus, vacuole, and cell membrane.

The classroom resource provides a slide show that will describe the structures of an animal cell. After utilizing this resource, the students can complete the short test to assess their understanding.

[SC2015] LSC7 (7) 5 :
5 ) Examine the cycling of matter between abiotic and biotic parts of ecosystems to explain the flow of energy and the conservation of matter.

a. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information about how food is broken down through chemical reactions to create new molecules that support growth and/or release energy as it moves through an organism.

b. Generate a scientific explanation based on evidence for the role of photosynthesis and cellular respiration in the cycling of matter and flow of energy into and out of organisms.

Title: Plant Cells StudyJam
URL: https://studyjams.scholastic.com/studyjams/jams/science/plants/plant-cells.htm
Description:

The cells of plants include several parts, such as the cell body, cytoplasm, mitochondria, nucleus, vacuole, cell membrane, cell wall, and chloroplasts. Only plant cells have plant walls and chloroplasts.

The classroom resource provides a slide show that will describe the structures of a plant cell. In addition, there is a sing-along video that students can perform karaoke-style that will help them remember the different structures. After utilizing these two resources, the students can complete the short test to assess their understanding.

[SC2015] HAP (9-12) 1 :
1 ) Develop and use models and appropriate terminology to identify regions, directions, planes, and cavities in the human body to locate organs and systems.

Title: Getting Organized
URL: https://www.nationalgeographic.org/lesson/getting-organized/
Description:

In this series of activities, students are introduced to the main types of microbes, scientific classification, how scientists organize living organisms, and the organization of the human body. They will also explore the smallest level of organization of the human body: the cell. They compare plant and animal cells by examining infographics that illustrate cell structures and relating them to organism functions.
